Maximize the Benefits of Using an Ultra-Low NOx Burner

by | Sep 13, 2019 | Blog

You may have already heard about a few of the benefits of switching to an ultra-low NOx burner, but there are many more that are sometimes missed. The growing global concern with reducing emissions and energy use is, perhaps, the primary reason to look into switching over. And, that single purpose has many other trickle-down benefits for your business or your customer’s bottom- line. At DB Sales, we are an industry leader in ultra-low NOx burners, and as representatives of only the best manufacturers, we guarantee to offer you the best service and products. We offer cradle-to- grave services to guide you through every step of the process and see your project to a satisfactory completion. If you’re not familiar with how these burners can boost energy efficiency, help the environment, and keep more money in your pocket, we’ve made a short guide to help you better understand the benefits.

How Does an Ultra-Low NOx Burner Work?

Thanks to continuously improving technology in this area, they can more accurately control the air/fuel mixture to the most optimum level. Better air/fuel mixture control allows for more efficient flame production and reduces the amount of fuel wasted by a remarkable amount. Finally, by reducing the amount of oxygen available in the hottest area of the flame, the efficiency of the burner is boosted. In many cases, combining these burners with other emissions-reducing measures can achieve as much as 75% greenhouse gas removal efficiency.

Just like any other equipment, high efficiency boilers are subject to damage. Most commercial boilers experience steam leaks, which can result in serious injuries, and can even explode causing massive property damage and death. Below are sure-fire tips to ensure your commercial boiler is working efficiently:

Why Should I Switch to an Ultra-Low NOx Burner?

NOx is the chemical symbol for nitrous oxide which is a toxic greenhouse gas that can react with other elements to cause a lot of harm to the environment in high concentrations. It is a byproduct of burning many of the common fuels we use today. Governments all over the world are pushing for replacement of older, less-efficient boilers in favor of those with newer, more efficient technology. Science is beginning to understand that conventional burners contribute to:
  • ✓ Ground-Level Ozone
  • ✓ Toxic Chemicals
  • ✓ Elevated Algae Levels in Waterways
  • ✓ Air & Water Pollution
  • ✓ Smog & Acid Rain
  • ✓ Respiratory Problems
  • ✓ Climate Change

Top 5 Benefits of Ultra-Low NOx Burners

  • Reduced emissions – Lower nitrous oxide (NOx) and carbon monoxide (CO) output into the environment
  • Low maintenance compared to conventional burners, saving you time and money.
  • A significant boost in energy efficiency will show ROI sooner.
  • Maintain EPA or Government compliance on emission levels. This can help avoid costly fines for non-compliance.
  • Typically, retrofitting a new burner is simple and no additional changes in ductwork or other infrastructure are required to transition.

Stay in Compliance with Strict NOx Regulations

Conserving resources, such as non-renewable natural gas, is at the heart of many emissions-related regulations. And, as regulations on commercial and residential boiler-emissions become stricter, it is important to stay ahead of the curve and avoid headaches down the road. The longer your customers wait to switch to a more advanced burner, the more likely it is they could face fines and other penalties.
